Teachers in southwest suburban Evergreen Park School District 124 may go on strike next week.

The union delivered an intent to strike notice to the school district.

The union president says teachers are not happy with the offer of a 2.25 percent pay increase for this year and a 2.5 percent increase for next year.

School officials say if teachers do strike on September 30th, they will be replaced with substitutes and classes will not be disrupted.
